Santa & the Shnugglefluffle

Have you ever wondered why you could never stay awake long enough to see Santa on Christmas Eve?

Well, little M has given it a good go, rehearsing for the first years of his life. This determination inspired the second short story in the ‘Matthew and the Shugglefluffle’ collection.

The short story introduces Santa to toddlers, who can often be baffled by the sudden change in season. Monkey and Matthew then discover how the Shnugglefuffles assist Father Christmas on Christmas Eve.


Santa & The Shnugglefluffle is written as the last book before sleep for 6month – 2 year olds. The aim of the series is to help develop a positive bedtime routine, the vibrant pictures, enjoyable story and familiar structure is designed to help babies understand what is happening each night.

Growing up, I often tried to stay awake to see Father Christmas deliver my presents, but every year, I would fall asleep before he and his reindeer arrived. Trying to figure out why and visiting the sleeping habits of little M, I realised that perhaps there was some magic at work!
This is the premise for ‘Santa and the Shnugglefluffle’ which incorporates the mysterious ‘shnugglefluffledust’ a ‘rocket’ and a ‘panda bear’.

Santa and the Shnugglefluffle is also available on Amazon Kindle and Amazon Book Store.
